Whitehall: The Street That Shaped a Nation by Colin Brown
Full of interesting little anecdotes and facts that leave you feeling quite satisfied as an armchair historian but the lack of focus in each chapter just left me feeling as though I was jumping through the centuries almost at will. I don't want to know about Elizabethan or 18th Century Whitehall in the Henry VIII chapter, nor do I expect to read anecdotes about modern day Whitehall in the Wolsey chapter.

A few factual inaccuracies at the beginning of the book also immediately put me on edge (Hampton Court was a private residence of Wolsey not an ecclesiastical palace). It's a shame because it is a fascinating subject but at times it felt like the author needed to get to a certain… Read more
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (Nintendo DS) by Nintendo

5.0 out of 5 stars Take That!, 27 Dec 2006
Well first of all i have to say what a fantastic game we have here. Probably slightly underrated in the Western Gaming world, this fantastic game is a must have for all DS owners.

The game revolves around the main character Phoenix Wright, a new attorney on the block who has to prove himself in a series of increasingly difficult cases.

If you are looking for action, shooting and running around, this is certainly not the game for you, but if you are looking for something that has well written characters, challenges for the old noggin' and some annoying, but ridiculously catchy music then this definitely is for you!

As soon as i got home, the jacket was flung in the corner and a mad dash was made for the CD player. Some time later i was left confused. No, it can't be. That was pretty poor. i must have something wrong, this is THE KOOKS. *all hail the kooks* remember. Listen to it again you fool. Several listens later i was sure that my musical ear had not deserted me. This… Read more
